Applus+ Laboratories is broadening its testing, certification and global-market-access portfolio for electrical and electronic devices that incorporate connectivity technology. This is a growing market due to the high technological demand of  of IoT devices, which enables the connecting of all sorts of equipment with a view to enhanced functionality, process improvements through access to data, and even the development of new business models.
